Jewish soldier's mail: stampless Active Service Privilege Envelope ex FPO 755 (Barletta, Italy) to Jewish Chronicle LONDON, 19 MY 44, with purple base censor cachet ('privilege' mail was free from censorship at the unit level but not at the base level) and notation "written in Hebrew". Although originating from Italy, this would not have been mail from a Jewish Brigade serviceman, as the Brigade was only formed in September (and reached Italy in October), but as written in Hebrew it was probably sent by a Palestinian Jewish serviceman.
